Always beautiful, so stop for a quick hike, but then keep going up the hill to hike Seven Bridges Trail.

it is a nice drive up and a quick hike to enjoy the small falls here. The rocks and steps can be very slippery!

The falls are visible from the parking lot. Great photo opportunities with little effort. Longer hike takes you up steep stairs to Cascade Falls. The view at the top is beautiful, the falls are minimal. Overall, this is worth a stop if in the area but I would not drive out of the way for this attraction.

My cousin and I came here. We are not in the best of shape, and it is a very steep incline. They have benches along the way for you to set down and rest and look out at the breath taking view. One way up, one way down. The walkway is fairly well maintained and it was clean. There is... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit whether in the summer or winter. There is a short hike about a quarter of a mile to the top with great views. The falls are always great to visit and are a must see. Can get a little crowded on the weekends. There is a visitor center which gives some... More

If you are in the park, make sure to stop by the falls. The falls are small, but still great to look at year round. We stopped by in the winter, and you can see the flowing water under the ice.

We were disappointed that the 7 Falls was gated and only Broodmore buses were allowed in. So we took a drive and stumbled on the Helen Hunt falls and were very pleased that this wasn't gated and was open and free to the public. The hiking there was nice, and very scenic. The drive along the upper gold mine road... More

A must visit for anyone with time for one of the best drives they can take or wanting a day out in nature. From the breathtaking views to the varies hiking spots my wife and I can't stop making drives up to Helen Hunt Falls and up the mountain.

Best thing about Helen Hunt Falls is that it's free and open to the public. Open year-round, flowing freely or frozen over, it's awesome to see and explore during any season. Mild trails take you near the bottom or to the top of the falls for stunning photos. And, if you're game for more hiking, the path above keeps going... More

This is a place I highly recommend! The drive there is beautiful and the climb up the falls is fairly easy and gorgeous! We love going with our family and friends.
